Mary will review the book, and after a group discussion, will lead those present in experiments for novices that Targ suggests in his book. The Reality of ESP: A Physicist’s Proof of Psychic Abilities  is based on two decades of investigations by renowned physicist Russell Targ at the Stanford Research Institute (SRI) which he co-founded with Harold Puthoff in 1972. He describes government research projects in psi phenomena that he was involved in, and gives many first-person descriptions. There are four types of experiments: remote viewing, distant mental influence, whole field isolation, and precognition and retrocausality.  A reviewer has said that in The Reality of ESP, Targ “has demonstrated beyond reasonable doubt that the mind can function without limitation in space and time, and that this ability is widespread, teachable, and practical.” (Larry Dossey, quoted at Quest Books website)
